Hello Everybody,
Below is another great event to join! The night will be a classic, don’t miss out! It’s for the kids!!
The 1st Annual “SPFK Winter Classic” will take place on Saturday, January 4th from 18.15-20.15 at the recently renovated Trout Lake Community Centre (3360 Victoria Dr). We all can play softball; but can we transfer that talent to the hockey rink? Please come support Sunday Funday’s LEAGUE WIDE fundraiser directly benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Hockey players will be drafted to a celebrity Coach’s team and receive 2 hours of ice time and complimentary beer for only a $50 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Fans can cheer on their favourite team and participate in several in-game events with the chance to win door prizes at the rink, as well as a complimentary beer and raffle prizes at the post game party at The Shack for a minimum donation of only $10 (kids are free at the game).

If you’re a Sunday Funday softball player and would like to play hockey (or cheer the teams on) and contribute to an amazing cause please CONFIRM directly to Klyner at klyner@telus.net and E-TRANSFER YOUR $50 DONATION to robbinsjudy8@gmail.com

Judy will deposit all donations into our SPFK account and confirm your eligibility for the draft to select teams at the Shack on Wednesday, December 4th at 19.00. THE FIRST 30 PLAYERS WHO PAY THEIR $50 DONATION TO THE MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION ARE GUARANTEED A SPOT. Please reply and donate promptly as this fundraiser will sell out since we only have 30 spots available.
